I have been asked to help publicise the “Tell Us Your Story” campaign, which is a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward people who you feel have really made a difference to someone or a community over the past year. Entries are submitted online at http://www.avivatellusyourstory.co.uk/
Launched by Aviva, for every entry they will donate £1 to the Street to School Programme – a global initiative with the aim of reaching 500,000 children worldwide, helping them get off the streets and back into education.
A weekly prize of £1000 will also be awarded to the local hero that captures the hearts of visitors to the site and receives the most votes. One overall winner will be chosen by a celebrity judging panel for a prize worth £10,000.
Not only is this a great way to recognise someone who has made a difference, but by nominating someone you will be making a difference in a child’s life to.
Did you know….
- 100,000 children under the age of sixteen run away from home every year in the UK
- 1 in 12 young runaways are hurt or harmed while they are away
- There are now only 5 refuge beds for runaway children in the whole of the UK
- 1 in 6 young runaways sleep rough
As a mum those facts are hard to swallow.
